While time management focuses on managing the amount of time available to complete tasks, task management focuses on organizing and prioritizing tasks themselves.
We often focus on how we are using our time but we should focus on what tasks we are using our time to accomplish.
Task management allows for a more effective use of time by breaking down large projects into smaller, more manageable tasks and prioritizing them based on their importance and deadlines.
The matrix is divided into four quadrants based on two criteria: importance and urgency. Importance refers to the significance of a task in achieving one's goals, while urgency refers to the time sensitivity of a task.
Using this technique is very effective and is much better than time blocking because you choose which tasks you want to accomplish
Urgency trapping is when you constantly keep doing the most urgent thing but not the most important thing
This creates burnout and stress and anxiety. The solution to this is to figure out how to optimize your tasks, and avoid procrastination.
Improving your focus can help you be more productive and achieve your goals more effectively. Here are some tips on how to focus better:
Minimize distractions: Remove or minimize distractions in your environment. Turn off notifications on your phone, close unnecessary tabs on your computer, and find a quiet place to work.
Set specific goals: Set clear goals for what you want to achieve. This will help you stay focused on the task at hand and avoid getting sidetracked.
Prioritize your tasks: Determine which tasks are most important and prioritize them accordingly.
Take breaks: Take regular breaks to rest your mind and recharge your energy. This can help you stay focused for longer periods of time.
Practice mindfulness: Practice mindfulness techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, or yoga. This can help you calm your mind and improve your ability to focus.
Remember, improving your focus is a skill that takes time and practice. Be patient with yourself and keep trying different techniques until you find what works best for you.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
